Re: mythpython documentation?

Yes, MythTV etc. can be imported in Python scripts. There are lots of scripts on the Wiki if you'd like examples, e.g. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Find_orphans.py mythpython is just a tool. mythpython --version returns local, external and schema information. With no argument it just does: from MythT...

Re: Pi Frontend Install hassles

Once ping works, my next favorite tool is: nmap --reason -p 3306 <yourBackendHostNameOrIP>
That decouples MythTV from the picture. Looking for:

Code: Select all

PORT     STATE SERVICE REASON
3306/tcp open  mysql   syn-ack
If that works, then SQL GRANTs may be of interest.

Re: AddVideo filename syntax?

For my system that's "/data2/videos". This is the value of my VideoStartupDir setting. The API is looking for the Storage Group: Videos . I'd verify that that points to /data2/videos too. If you're looking for additional logging, make sure the LOG(...) macro has the component you're interested in, ...

Re: Future shows in oldrecorded

Hi, Please resist the urge to alter the DB. In this case, the future column is likely set to 1 for new episodes you scheduled to record. That happens when the program guide is updated. So the lines you delete reappear by design. Why some episodes don't record is unknown, too little information here....

Re: What is the correct way to add HDhomerun devices in version 30?

With v30 you must define each tuner (e.g. I have 3.) Then in section 5. Input connections, all
configured tuners will be displayed.

Re: No useful output from Find_orphans.py

Hi, Works for me in v31-Pre. Do you know that there are orphaned recordings? Otherwise, that's the normal output, although things like DB backups normally show. By the way, get in the habit of not using the leading 'python' before the program. The shebang on the top line of find_orphans.py does that...

Re: Working v29.1 suddenly ceases to record or get Live TV

I'd verify that all directories in the path have read/write/search permission, not just live_tv. Note that the backend typically runs as user mythtv and the above is owner/group thelma. systemctl status --no-pager mythtv-backend.service will get proper logs, without --no-pager, you get the truncated...

There's a hostname column in the settings table. Both backend and frontend settings are stored there.

Re: CEC remote control fails after TV turned off then on again

I don't have a TV that uses it, so just an idea where to start. Also not a Pi user (strike two.)

There's quite a bit of logging in the CEC code. Even more if -v general:debug is
added when the frontend is started.

Re: Mythtv 31 - video playback not working

I don't have Nvidia anymore, but check Setup->Video->Playback->Current Video Playback Profile. I assume you want one of the VDPAU profiles. Try: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/2019-render as there were massive rendering changes. I'm running master (tagged v31-Pre) on mythbuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 19.04 and 1...

Re: Backend status query

Can't tell.

The lines above are truncated, most likely by systemclt as it passes the output to your pager,
which then sizes it for your current window.

Try: systemctl status --no-pager mythtv-backend (you don't need to be root for status.)

Re: What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

There's a page for SD lineup issues: https://schedulesdirect.org/lineupsupport

To "suspend" a rule, look near the bottom of the rule for: Recording Rule Is Active and
uncheck it.
